Interaction of Meloidogyne incognita and Rhizoctonia solani on brinjal was evaluated under the net house condition. The results revealed that the dual inoculation treatments significantly decreased plant growth parameters over single inoculation treatments. Simultaneous inoculation of M. incognita and R. solani showed maximum reduction in plant growth parameters of brinjal. However, the root knot index and final nematode population was found maximum in single inoculation treatment than dual inoculation treatments. The maximum disease intensity was observed in M. incognita @1000 J2 /kg of soil + R. solani @ 1 % w/w after 15days of inoculation.
